Narrative Skills: What it is
Narrative Skills include the ability to tell stories, as well as describing things and events. This skill set is important for reading comprehension; in simpler terms, it is grasping meaning from a story. Thus, the ability for a child to understand the sequence stories are told in.
Oral Language Development: What it is
Oral language is the foundation of literacy. Pre-kindergarten children are not reading yet, but they are building comprehension skills through listening, the lively back-and-forth of every day conversations, pretend play, and active read alouds where parent and child are having a dialogue about the book.
